Nope, but...

Never owned one, but they look mighty cool. Check out Hackaday.com for news on the Zaurus Linux UI being ported, with working USB Host mode. This turns it into a totally useable general purpose computing platform - USB MIDI, audio, NICs, wireless, keyboards, mice etc etc etc

On third thought, I might wait for the MS UMPC. (Blasphemy, I know...)

With luck perhaps there might be an Apple product with similar ideas.

Is that the new mini-tablet/ wireless remote desktop thing? createdigitalmusic.com suggests they're a waste of money, an underpowered, overpriced, too-small tablet. Tablets are around the same price point, more powerful and have a bigger screen.

Still, you're talking $2k there, not under $200. I would love to pony up for a GP2X just to see.

GNUStep on Zaurus

Oh, and did you know you can run a Mac like GUI and -some- OS X-like apps on a Zaurus or Nokia 770??

Interesting... I wonder i

Interesting...

I wonder if there could be a port of that to a 68k Mac with some form of Linux on it... Then you could run OS X apps on a classic Mac! I'll try installing it on a few different things...
